History and future plans
Noroff started as a training and consulting company in 1987. We gradually evolved into a popular vocational school and university college for students interested in communication and digital fields of education. The main focus for Noroff is to educate our students to a labor market in need of expertise in IT and digital areas.
In the summer of 2016, we opened a brand new campus in Oslo. This brings us even closer to professional communities, creating employment opportunities for our students.
